What proved to be one or the most
exciting games played on the Vaughn
street grounds this season saw the
Portland Beavers lose to Salt Lake yes
terday afternoon In 10 innings by a
score of 4 to 3. It was one of those
hair-raising affairs with the hate! op
position winning in the final frame,
after Billy Speas had covered himself
with glory in the eighth by sending
Fitsher home with ' the tying run with
a beautiful two-ply swat which cut
the third hassock square in two. The
result enabled Salt Lake to even up the
series, each nine winning three con

staged in a continual downpour and
every pastimer who participated In the
struggle went to the shower bath

used good judgment in calling the sec

Manager Walter Henry McCredle, of
the Portland baseball club, was a happy
individual last night when the Salt

The Bees brought a bunch of misfor

everything into consideration, the
Mackmen were lucky to get an even
break In the series Just closed.
Three cylinders in the Portland ma
chine misfired last week. On Wednes
day Denny Wllle, star center fielder and
a lad hitting at a .325 clip turned his
ankle going into second base. The
same day "Rip" Hagerman. lenghy
flinger, developed a sore arm, and to
cap the climax, on Saturday Bunny

Every dark cloud has a silver lin

locals is not discouraged.
What the Portland club needs more
than all," said Walter McCredie last
night, "is another reliable pitcher. I

v ith one more good flinger, 1 11 start

of the percentage column.
Wilie will be back in centerfleld
Tuesday and Doc Clough says that
Louie Gulsto will be ready Wednesday.
The forced rest should do them both
good. Hagerman's arm should round
in shape by the end of the week.
"We have heard nothing dafinite from
Cleveland relative to the coming of
Willie Mitchell, the veteran southpaw.
He would surely round out our staff.
I don't think I am going too far when
I say that we will win the pennant
with one more pitcher. The team will
be one of the best Portland ever had
as soon as those now on the sick list
recover. The two accidents of the
week and Hagerman's arm going
wrong, with Ward afready on the bum,
knocked the tar out of us. At that
we would have won the series had

Skipper Blankenship and his Bees
departed for Los Angeles last night,

At the' solicitation of Cecil Bauer,
nrlrient of th- Tualatin Country Club,
Chandler Egan visited the new club 12
miles south of the city on Tuesday
last. The fairways and greens
Tualatin are in wonderful condition
for a two years" growth. The club haa
puirhasid another 60 or 65 acres to
the west of the present nine holes, and
Mr. Egan was out giving the Tualatin
officials a few tips on how to lay out
the other nine so that it will start nnd
finish near the clubhouse. Ten or !5
acres of the new parcel is already
cleat ei and in cultivation, but the re
mainder lies in a beautifully wooded
ract. It may reautre $4000 or SS000
to clear the fairways and put them in
condition for play. but. once this is
done, Tualatin will be able to boast
of as picturesque a last nine as any
on the Coast-
There has been some saltation n
the part of the better players for one
hole across the Tualatin river, which
winas through the property. It would
require a shot of 160 to 180 yards,
however, and as this Is a rather stiff
hazard for the women and the medio
cre player, it Is not likely the plan
will be -dopted.
How far does a golfer walk In nub.

asked numberless times. The answer
depencs in great measure upon the
ability of the golfer, for the good

exertion required by the dub who rig
sags all over the course. Henry Blake,
